I’m finally getting ready to pull the trigger. Using Surety for sure and the Qolsys panel. My house has a pretty open floor plan so I think two motions on the on the first floor will provide good coverage. I’ll obviously put sensors on all the doors. My first question, is there a recessed door sensor available for the Qolsys system?
My second question comes to windows. I understand the motions will provide the cheapest coverage while armed away. What is the best way to cover windows while home? I’ve read about shock, glass break, and obviously just putting a sensor on each window but am still unsure of the best solution. I’ve read about arming away while home, but I work weird hours so it would be nice to be able to leave it armed and still move around the house.
Lastly, I’m curious how most people cover a roll up garage door. Is it best to just use a garage door contact but only monitor it, not have it trigger the alarm? We will enter the house mostly from the garage.
